I was thinking about what I said the other day, how I won't show you the sketches I am working on. I thought it would be boring for people to see, but I got 5 e-mails where people were asking me to actually show them what's in my sketchbook.
So, I thought about it and I am starting these series called " Notes from the sketchbook" where I'm going to show you the sketches I made recently.
Here we go!
Let's start with my favorite sketchbook- A Daler-Rowney Cachet Earthbound recycled sketchbook!
You wouldn't believe where I found this, but I got it for 5 bucks at Walmart ( it was in the clearance section) and there were only 2 of them!
I love it because it's different! The paper has character! When you look at it, you don't see a simple white ( or black) page...there is so much to the recycled paper!
I've mentioned it times and again, but my favorite packing paper and bags are the recycled ones! I love to decorate them with virtually anything and make them for every occasion!
So, here are couple of things I made in this sketchbook! I used Papermate Clasic HB pencils, Uni-Ball Signo white ink pen, a silver gel pen, Marvy Uchida Le Plume Memory Book Marker( black), and Pirma Micron pigmented archival ink pen.
I don't know if it's visible enough, but this one has a lot of silver lines on the background. These pictures could hove come out better, but...
The waterfall :-)
Unfortunately on most pictures the silver pen is almost not visible. :-( The sketches are much better looking in person, but what can you do.
What do you think? Do you want more? :-)
